My Little Lamb
Christmas Gift Guide
Can you imagine the possibilities – if a child is exposed to God’s Word beginning at infancy and continuing throughout his childhood?
I had the experience of visiting a very sick baby (my Manny) at Children’s Hospital from the time he was one month old through his first discharge eight or nine months later. I visited him seven days a week and every day I prayed over him and I sang to him: “Jesus loves you, this I know. For the Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong. They are weak but He is strong.”
My Little Lamb
My Little Lamb is available for purchase here.

Manny didn’t really speak until after his 2nd birthday. But when he started talking, without prompting, he began to sing, “Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus loves me. Yes, Jesus loves me, for the Bible tells me so!” I was convinced…the capacity of infants to absorb and retain information was clear – for just such a time as now! Infants and small children can have God’s Word tucked inside a small stuffed animal that introduces them to their Creator – before they even learn to talk!

My Little Lamb is a stuffed animal audio Bible that plays Bible verses to give joy and comfort to little ones and help them sleep better. Click here to order your My Little Lamb. Proceeds from the sale go toward supporting ministry efforts of sharing audio Bible with those who may not be able to afford it.

Christmas Gift Guide

Moore has you covered when it comes to Christmas Gift ideas.  Choose from items starting at less than $20 and use the coupon code BAMAGIFT for 20% off your order. Gift ideas include the Crimson and White 2023 Fine Art Calendar featuring Alabama National Championship images from original paintings by Daniel A. Moore as well as Moore’s new pencil drawing portrait of college football Coach Nick Saban. Moore found inspiration for this work in Leonardo da Vinci’s striking drawing, the Turin Self Portrait. In keeping with that genre, the artist has digitally infused tone and background into his drawing to visually simulate some of the same patina and richness inherent in the Old Master’s centuries-old masterpiece.
